espy awards


Conor McGregor is a very happy camper this morning.

Last week he was nominated for two ESPY Awards and last night the Irish fighter WON Best Fighter of the Year.

The awards, which are hosted by US TV network ABC, were an extremely glitzy affair last night with the world's most glamorous sports stars stepping out on the red carpet.

He was also nominated for Best Breakthrough Athlete but that award went to Jake Arrieta, an American baseball player.

Conor wrote on Instagram to thank his fans: "It is an honour to take 'Best Fighter' at the prestigious ESPY awards!

"I am deep in preparation to come take out everyone that has spoke my name in vain. I will get you all."

Ah, Conor, never change.



Now this certainly clears up a few things. 

There are worse people to base your style on than the world's most stunning actress, we guess. 

But we're not really surprised Caitlyn takes style inspiration from other places than her family, as they can all have many style disasters. 

In the latest clip of Caitlyn's documentary, I Am Cait, the 65 year-old hires the help of stylist Jen Rade to get ready for the Espy Award back in July – and the only reason she hired Jen is because she is Angelina's stylist too. 

"I just love her look, " admits Cait. 

"Very casual, very elegant, chic."

In the scene where Jen meets Cait she is stunned by how impressive her wardrobe is. 

"Oh my gosh, this is a great closet! Every one of these is so pretty," Jen said. "I was thinking I wanted to go shopping for you, but this is beautiful!"

In July, Caitlyn was awarded the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the sports ceremony, in which you will see in the next installment of I Am Cait. 




Despite being all over the media yesterday following her inspiring speech at the ESPY awards on Wednesday night in L.A, some people are still not happy with Caitlyn Jenner.

The former Olympian has received much criticism from a driver involved in the fatal crash on Feb 7 which Caitlyn was also involved in.

Jessica Steindorff issues a statement to ET following Caitlyn receiving the award with outlined her anger at Caitlyn being honoured after taking someone’s life.

It is still being debated at the moment as to whether Caitlyn was at fault or not, but Jessica says she does not deserve to be called a role model.

“I find it difficult to understand how the culture we live in can honour a person who is responsible for taking a life and injuring several others with both an award and a reality show.”

She went on to say in the statement that while Caitlyn is a positive role model in many other aspects of her life, she has “failed to do the right thing and take responsibility for her actions.”

While Caitlyn has been in the public eye since her transition, she has not spoken about the incident where possible. Jessica said she would hope that for someone who spoke so passionately about compassion and understanding for others that she “would be more sensitive to the fact that she ended another person’s life.”

 While Jessica is angered by the fact that Caitlyn does not seem to be taking responsibility for her actions she is also not surprised about the fact that is has happened this way.

She said: “Sadly we are living in a tabloid society.”


The Kardashian-Jenner siblings were out in force at last night's ESPYs, where Caitlyn Jenner was honoured with the annual Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

While Kylie Jenner stole the show in the style stakes with her downright incredible Shady Zeineldine gold sequined fishtail gown, her older sister Kendall made headlines today for very different reasons.

If we were asked to stand in front of hundreds of flashing camera bulbs we'd barely be able to stand up straight, let alone pose with the poise that Kendall did last night.

But the thing that really has us weirded out today? The fact that the 19-year-old model managed to face the cameras for a full 20 seconds without blinking even once. Not once! Fashion brand ASOS picked up on the quirk of Kendall's red carpet routine, and posted this video on their Facebook page to prove just how strange it is:

Even in bright sunlight, with all the flashes, Kendall Jenner didn't blink ONCE in 19.5 seconds at last night's ESPYs. Such a professional

Here at SHEmazing! Towers we tried not blinking for the duration of the video and failed miserably, so kudos to Kendall for managing it with sunllight, camera flashes and shouting photographers in her face. 

Just to clear things up though, the reality star is definitely NOT a robot, as she has blinked on at least one previous occasion:

This family never cease to amaze us.



Former Irish international soccer player Robbie Keane was looking dapper on the red carpet of the ESPY awards last night.

Robbie and his wife Claudine were amongst a host of A-list celebrities including the entire Kardashian/Jenner clan and Britney Spears as they attended the event in Los Angelus. 

Claudine, a former beauty queen, looked stunning for the event carrying an Alexander McQueen clutch bag and wearing a flowing black gown with a cut-out neckline. 

Robbie was presented with an ESPY award at the ceremony, making him the only Irish person to ever win one. 

The soccer players wife tweeted her congratulations for him saying "So delighted that rob has won an ESPY award for Best MLS player, 1st Irish person to win an ESPY.#proud" 

The mother-of-one moved to LA with her husband in 2011 and they live their with their son Robert, who is pictured with his Dad's award on Claudine's Twitter.


Last night the ESPY awards took place and countless stars hit the red carpet.

Two who certainly caught our eye were none other than Kendall and Kylie Jenner. They were at the event to support Caitlyn Jenner, who was being honoured with the Arthur Ashe award at the ceremony.

Putting their best fashion foot forward, both sisters pulled out all the stops.

Kylie,17, made heads turn fast in her floor length gown covered in thousands of tiny gold sequins. The dress was a creation of Lebanese designer Shady Zeineldine.

Sporting a shorter dark hair style she went dresses that famous pout of hers in a nude lip colour and went for a bright white manicure which we really want to try. Her dress had long sleeves and a high neckline, which was unexpected but incredibly chic.

Kendall, the 19-year old fashion model, chose a black gown by Alexander Vauthier with sheer panels and a plunging neckline.


All black had to change to match

While older sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney were at the event they opted not to walk the red carpet. Brody Jenner meanwhile took to the carpet with his girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter. He took a more laid back approach with a black suit and black t-shirt combo.

Younger sisters Kendall and Kylie certainly stole the show with their all –out-glam styles(insert heart eyes emojis here). Backstage all the family were in attendance and wore co-ordinated black outfits as they posed for some family snaps which Kylie posted on her Instagram page.

Singer Ciara almost managed to upstage them though, when she appeared wearing a fabulous Elie Saab gown with a dip dyed indigo to plum colouring.

Caitlyn herself had the help of stylist Jen Rade to get her outfit for the night on point. Wearing an eye-catching custom Atelier Versace gown in white. The gown also had long sleeves with a high slit. She looked incredibly as she discussed transgender issues and the challenges faced by the trans community on stage.
